A concise introduction to the history and evolution of security at sea.

Whether it is pirates, smugglers, illicit fishing, or disputes in the South China Sea, the oceans are of increasing importance in international security. In Understanding Maritime Security, Christian Bueger and Timothy Edmunds provide a concise introduction to the history of security at sea and explain the core frameworks of analysis that professionals use to understand and tackle challenges to maritime order. They discuss key issues within the maritime security agenda, including inter-state disputes, terrorism, piracy, smuggling, trafficking, and illicit fishing, and examine how states have responded. Bueger and Edmunds analyze future trends and show how maritime security is impacted by the critical infrastructure agenda, emerging technologies, cyber security, climate change, biodiversity loss, and the renaissance of geopolitics. Comprehensive and incisive, this primer of maritime security is essential reading for maritime security professionals and students of this increasingly important issue.
Industry Reviews
"Understanding Maritime Security is a 'must-read' for any government official, practitioner, or student who needs to get a handle on contemporary security challenges in the maritime domain. It provides readers with a thoughtful exposition of different approaches to maritime security, as well as exploring the most pressing concerns in the area, ranging from naval demonstrations (or grey zone tactics) to policing challenges and accessing information. Bueger and Edmunds' extensive knowledge and experience in researching and teaching maritime security contribute to the outstanding clarity and relevance of the text." -- Natalie Klein, UNSW Faculty of Law and Justice "We are dependent on the seas around us in so many ways and yet, in general, our ignorance of this fact and disregard for the health and security of the oceans is dismaying. In this important and timely book, Bueger and Edmunds show why all this matters - from the workings of piracy and ports to illicit fishing and inter-state conflicts - and how we need to embrace long term collaboration and planetary thinking rather than persist with short-term competition." -- Nigel South, University of Essex "A welcome and overdue addition to the plethora of recent issues of insecurity at sea in the form of hi-jacking by terrorists, piracy off the Horn of Africa, uncontrolled immigration in the Mediterranean and Channel, illegal fishing off West Africa, and threatened grain supplies in the Black Sea. None of these issues is static, simple, or discrete; the sea is the world's greatest connector so no single actor, whether government or international organisation can create a governance framework or hope to enforce it widely. This book offers a comprehensive and disciplined approach to understanding the web of interconnected challenges to maritime security, distilling the issues and creating frameworks to enable key players to move beyond case by cases reactive responses to a more coherent and systematic form of governance and enforcement." --Vice Admiral Sir Anthony Dymock, Wise Pens International Ltd., and UK military representative to NATO, 2006-08
